Android, Edge, Stickers, and Fonts App Promotion

The Samsung ecosystem promotes your Android apps (that integrate Galaxy SDK and In-App Purchase SDK features) with a product detail page for each app, your own product line page (with all of your apps), and more Galaxy Store features.

 

The  Galaxy Store, available to Galaxy mobile device users, promotes your paid and free Android apps. The Samsung ecosystem also directly promotes these apps and supports Galaxy Store promotions.

For details about how Samsung supports you and your own promotions, see Promotion in your own marketing and media channels.
